Rolls-Royce Unveils One-Of-One Phantom Inspired By Scenic Italian Coastline
By Alexa Heah, 29 Sep 2023
Rolls-Royce has unveiled a one-of-a-kind masterpiece: the Phantom ‘Inspired by Cinque Terre.’
This bespoke motor car pays homage to the captivating beauty and rich viticultural heritage of the Italian Riviera’s Cinque Terre, known as the ‘Five Lands.’
Perched on cliffs, the centuries-old villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore are renowned for their steeply terraced vineyards that overlook the Mediterranean landscape.
The exterior of this extraordinary automobile boasts a deep, luxurious Ligurian Blue finish, accentuated by a meticulously hand-applied double coachline in Navy Blue and Jasmine.
Adding a touch of artistry, a delicate grapes motif adorns the exterior, paying homage to the region’s vineyards.
Step inside, and one will be greeted by an interior that combines Grace White and Navy Blue leather with subtle Jasmine accents.
The rear doors feature exquisite grape-branch embroidery, an intricate design composed of 9,215 stitches created using two different techniques.
But the grape motif doesn’t end there. It continues as an intricate inlay on the picnic tables, crafted from stainless steel and gold plating.
The attention to detail is exceptional; the surfaces were painted in Milori Blue with a subtle sparkle, providing depth and vibrancy.
Skilled artisans then applied the inlays by hand, sealing them with clear lacquer and meticulously hand-polishing them to achieve a seamless finish.
Looking up, passengers will find the Starlight Headliner enriched with a map of Italy, meticulously adorned with 14,338 individual stitches.
This artistic masterpiece positions five glowing stars by hand at the edge of the coastline to represent the Cinque Terre villages.
In addition, within the expansive fascia lies a Gallery showcasing a specially commissioned artwork that captures the essence of the region.
The composition blends elements from all five cliffside villages, and it was meticulously airbrushed by hand with water-based acrylic paint for exceptional detail.
Even the glove compartment holds a delightful surprise, with silver debossing depicting the five villages.
As an exclusive one-of-one commission, the Phantom ‘Inspired by Cinque Terre’ is no doubt a remarkable creation that bridges the worlds of automotive excellence and high art, celebrating the allure of the picturesque landscape and ensuring that its legacy endures.
